Job Overview
Qualcomm CDMA Technologies (QCT) is the largest provider of 3G/4G chipset and software technology in the world, with chipsets shipped to more than 50 customers and powering the majority of all Cellular devices commercially available. QCT partners with nearly 60 Cellular Network operators around the globe and has the largest (W)CDMA engineering team in the wireless industry. QCT provides complete chipset solutions and integrated applications from the Launchpad suite of advanced technologies. Our integrated solutions offer device manufacturers reduced bill-of-materials costs, time-to-market, and development time. Mobile handsets powered by QCT chipsets can offer more features while maintaining a smaller, sleeker form-factor and benefiting from reduced power demands. QCT values collaboration with its customers and partners and works closely with them to enable their success. We offer a wide range of tools to support the device development process, and develop new technologies based on the needs and demands of the wireless market. Devices for all market segments can now include features enabled by 3G/4G Cellular & Wireless technology, in demand by a growing and increasingly sophisticated wireless community. QCT's Bangalore India team is in search of an experienced Wireless Modem Architects/Digital Designers to work on Qualcomm best in class chipsets and Modem cores.
